Glossybox Under The Sea - July Edition

The July edition of Glossybox has arrived and this month the theme is 'Under The Sea' and it arrives in the most stunning box which is very mermaid-esque. Featuring products that are designed to give you that beach babe vibe, these are the essentials, worth £49.93* within my box.

SENHOR DO BONFIM Sea Water Hair Spray (£16) - A full-size product at 50ml this spray is said to help you achieve beachy mermaid waves. The bottle which is pink plastic features a cute shell theme which is in keeping with the theme.

I have never come across the brand before, but I do love sprays like this which help tame my natural waves in the humidity, so I am looking forward to giving it a try.

Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Hand Therapy Hand Cream (£8) - This is one of my favourite hand creams from Crabtree & Evelyn and I am glad to have another tube to add to my stash. 
Glossybox Under The Sea - July Edition
It is infused with a Hydra Marine Blend of Green Seaweed and Red Algae which soothes and nourishes as antioxidant Vitamin E helps to protect against environmental aggressors and then there is a Myrrh Extract which helps to condition the nails and cuticles whilst Shea Butter and Macadamia Nut Oil pamper and regenerate. This is the perfect hand cream if your hands are in need of some TLC because it is so hydrating and moisturising without being greasy.

Oriflame The One-in-5 Wonder Lash Mascara (£9) - A brand I haven't come across for years, this mascara from Oriflame claims that it will smoothly lift, curl, volumise, lengthen and separate the lashes without smudging, smearing, running or flaking which is quite a bold claim.

With a unique double-sided brush, it is recommended that the short bristles are used to lift and sculpt the lashes and the other side to lengthen and define.  I am glad that the formula of this mascara isn't overly wet and it is a deep black shade.  One the lashes, I didn't notice that it lifted, curled or added any volume when used, but I do have fairly long lashes.  

Inuwet Cheek Shell Brush (£15) - Hailing from Korea, this cruelty-free and Vegan cheek brush is again very much in keeping with the theme of the box with its shell design.

Perfect for the application of powdered bronzers, blushers and highlighters, the synthetic bristles which are densely packed are incredibly soft on the skin.

Regenerate Enamel Science Toothpaste (£2.50) - This toothpaste, which I've read quite a bit about, features the clinically proven, patented NR-5™ technology. This toothpaste effectively works to recreate the mineral that tooth enamel is made of, working to reverse the early erosion process and protect against cavities, acid and decay.

Im not too sure how this fits in with the theme of the box, but it is a handy size for travelling and has been added to my travel products ready for Disneyland Paris in a few months time.

The final product in the box is described as being a 'treat' and in short, it isn't, it is a sachet that doesn't contain enough product to gage an opinion as to whether or not you would purchase a full size.

However, this sachet of Hawaiian Tropic Duo Defence Sun Lotion SPF30 is made with green tea extract to form an Anti-Pollution protective layer on your skin. Described as having a lightweight texture, leaving the skin feeling moisturised and pampered, never greasy it is infused with mango, guava, papaya, and passion fruit. Recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation and water-resistant for up to 80 minutes. Now, this would have been a great addition to the box had it been a better size because it is something you would use on holiday, by the sea or just for some added protection whilst enjoying this glorious UK sunshine.

So there you have 'Under The Sea' from Glossybox to complete there July Edition.  To add to the excitement, GLOSSYBOX has also teamed up with On the Beach to offer a prize draw to win a £500 voucher to spend on a holiday.
